Topic: Beyond Health Information Exchange as We Know It: From Disease to Health

Bio: Titus Schleyer is focused on applied clinical informatics research at the Regenstrief Institute, with a particular emphasis on how health information exchange can help promote and maintain health, as well as prevent and treat disease. How can Indiana be one of the most wired states in the US and still be near the bottom in major health outcomes and measures? Dr. Schleyer is trying to help solve this problem with innovative uses of health information technology in practical healthcare settings. He holds DMD degrees from the University of Frankfurt, Germany, and Temple University, Philadelphia, as well as a PhD degree in molecular biology from the University of Frankfurt and an MBA degree in Health Administration from Temple University. Dr. Schleyer has been active in biomedical informatics research since 1989, conducting seminal research on electronic dental records and Internet applications, and workflow and human-computer interaction in dentistry. He founded the Department of Dental Informatics at Temple University, as well as the Center for Dental Informatics at the University of Pittsburgh. Dr. Schleyer´s informatics research is primarily funded by the National Institutes of Health. In 2009, Dr. Schleyer was elected to the American College of Medical Informatics.
